  8. what is tableau achitecture. A. It is Client and Server based N-Tier Achitecture. We build Tableau reports in using Tableau Desktop and Deploy them to Tableau Server. Tableau Server runs on 3 diference services Visual Server: This sends the queries to database and then coverts it to the visuals/Images you see in tableau. Database/Repository Server: This manages the connectivity and maintains the data extracts. Application Server: This handles the Authentication and Authorization.
  9. what is tableau reader A. Tableau reader is used to open the .twbx(Tableau packaged Workbook) files and it can only open the files and it can not create new connections and workbooks.
  10. What are there any data limitations with tableau public? A. Tableau Public can connect to Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Access, and multiple text file formats. It has a limit of 1,000,000 rows of data that is allowed in any single file. Yes, your data on Tableau Public is now accessible on the world-wide web and is downloadable by anyone. We strongly suggest you only publish data you are willing to share with anyone.
  11. how can u set permissions or protect the data in tableau public? A. We don't have any options for applying permissions to user in Tableau public. World wide web users will be able to access all files present in tableau public. No Security in public,so don't share any company confidential data.
